In the focus of recent feedback that I got, I think there is a need for me to justify some of the decisions we made while developing Webiny Framework.
I've been writing PHP applications for the last 10 years. PHP is still, mostly thanks to Wordpress, the most used server-side language on the Internet (source). It is used on more than 82% of all websites. But why, with all that “glory” some developers say is really bad language? They often use the term "spaghetti code”, slow or even evil.
I want to use this blog post to pass along our vision and goal for Webiny. It’s not always easy to show and make somebody feel the same energy and enthusiasm that we currently have within our team, but I'll do my best.
Webiny Framework is just another PHP based framework ... yes that's TRUE, and this blog post is exactly about that. I will talk about why we created a new PHP framework, how do we plan to develop it further and why should you try it out.
A brief status update on the project roadmap, and current activities.
In this article I'll talk about the performance of Webiny as a platform. These performance enhancements are built into every Webiny-powered website. So, if you don't already have a free website on Webiny, just click on the link in the box to the right and experience these methods first hand.
We all know how IE is good with table design, but luckily these days are long over, and still, IE sticks like the gum on the bottom of your shoe that just won't fall off, making our lives as developers and designers a nightmare. Most of us hoped that with IE9 the problems will disappear, which in some part was true.
This blog post gives an overview how to do asynchronous file upload using new possibilities given in HTML5. Besides that, we talk about how to use PHP I/O streams to keep the memory footprint low as possible during upload of large files. This principle is also used for uploading files in Webiny administration.
As of this week we are offering free custom made themes for Business or Professional subscriptions. Each theme is unique and made by customer guidelines. The theme is either designed by Webiny team directly, or by a Webiny partner.
Managing a mobile website is not much different from managing a regular website. The only rule is that the content musn't be too wide for mobile displays, and that the navigation is adapted for mobile browsing.
